To provide an update on the genetic factors recently associated with the interindividual variability of tomato carotenoid bioavailability.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Current opinion in clinical nutrition and metabolic care
Recent data have shown that interindividual variability in the bioavailability of vitamins A (β-carotene), D, and E, and carotenoids (lutein and lycopene), as well as that of phytosterols, is modulat...
Carotenoids are orange, yellow, and red lipophilic pigments present in many fruit and vegetables, as well as other food groups. Some carotenoids contribute to vitamin A requirements. The consumption a...
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) play an important role in plant nutrition and protection against pests and diseases, as well as in soil structuration, nutrient cycling and, generally speaking, in s...
Fruit aroma development depends on ripening. Abscisic acid (ABA) has been reported to be involved in the regulation of tomato fruit ripening. In the present study, the effects of exogenous ABA on arom...
Psoriasis vulgaris (PsV) is the most common subtype of psoriasis which only involved the skin and without joint symptoms, and both environmental and genetic factors were involved in its etiology . So...
The goal of this study is to determine if papaya fruits are an exceptionally good food source for carotenoids in humans, particularly when compared more common carotenoid sources like carr...
This clinical trial aims to test the effects of consuming two types of tomato (one ordinary cherry red tomato containing lycopene, and the other a yellow cherry tomato low in lycopene), on...
The purpose of this research study is to test whether certain compounds in tomatoes will help reduce factors in the subject's blood associated with disease risk. The investigators want to ...
The primary objective of this study is to determine if tomato-soy juice can reduce inflammation, which is linked to prostate cancer, in obese males.
This is an acute human bioavailability study in self-reported healthy participants aged 20-70 years old. The investigators hypothesize that combination of polyphenolics from a soup rich in...
The discipline studying genetic composition of populations and effects of factors such as GENETIC SELECTION, population size, MUTATION, migration, and GENETIC DRIFT on the frequencies of various GENOTYPES and PHENOTYPES using a variety of GENETIC TECHNIQUES.
A subfamily of nuclear receptors that regulate GENETIC TRANSCRIPTION of a diverse group of GENES involved in the synthesis of BLOOD COAGULATION FACTORS; and in GLUCOSE; CHOLESTEROL; and FATTY ACIDS metabolism.
A family of transcription factors characterized by the presence of highly conserved calcineurin- and DNA-binding domains. NFAT proteins are activated in the CYTOPLASM by the calcium-dependent phosphatase CALCINEURIN. They transduce calcium signals to the nucleus where they can interact with TRANSCRIPTION FACTOR AP-1 or NF-KAPPA B and initiate GENETIC TRANSCRIPTION of GENES involved in CELL DIFFERENTIATION and development. NFAT proteins stimulate T-CELL activation through the induction of IMMEDIATE-EARLY GENES such as INTERLEUKIN-2.
Heterodimeric transcription factors containing a DNA-binding alpha subunits, (CORE BINDING FACTOR ALPHA SUBUNITS), along with a non-DNA-binding beta subunits, CORE BINDING FACTOR BETA SUBUNIT. Core Binding Factor regulates GENETIC TRANSCRIPTION of a variety of GENES involved primarily in CELL DIFFERENTIATION and CELL CYCLE progression.
Protein factors uniquely required during the initiation phase of protein synthesis in GENETIC TRANSLATION.
